So I am thinking of buying an Asus Radeon RX 470 ROG Strix 4GB GPU to use on an old motherboard I had lying around with 1 x PCIE 16, 2 x PCIE 1 and 1 x PCI slot.
The motherboard also has an Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 in it that I plan to use as well as 2 x 2GB RAM sticks and 2 x 1GB RAM sticks.
I have a few questions about this: 1. Will the old components slow down the GPU's ability to mine? 2. Does RAM speed matter for a mining rig? 3. Is it better to just use the 2 x 2GB RAM sticks? I have heard some things about one-sided RAM sticks not working well and the 1GB sticks are one-sided.
Thanks in advance!
